Taking a seat for social change in Tompkins Square Park
Tompkins Square Park didn't get a Sing for Hope piano this summer ... however, the Park will be home in the next few months to "CEI Benchmarks: Youth Setting the Standard for Social Change," a campaign spearheaded by the nonprofit Center for Educational Innovation.
The three benches, which arrived yesterday over in the middle of the Park by the ping-pong table, were created by local public school students to "confront major social issues." (Thanks to Steven for the photos!)
So far, people seem to like them... and they haven't been vandalized...
